Depart the urban jungle for a day trip to the awe-inspiring natural wonders of Yosemite National Park. Your adventure begins with an early departure from San Francisco so you can make the most of your day at the park. Just sit back and relax on the drive to the park. You’ll pass through the Central Valley and ascend into the Sierra foothills before being greeted at Yosemite by jaw-dropping views of the valley. Magnificent granite cliffs slope into the deep verdant valley, which was carved out by glaciers thousands of years ago.
You’ll have several hours to explore the treasure of the valley, so be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. Listen to your guide as he explains the natural forces that have formed and changed Yosemite over the years. Stroll the pedestrian paths or rent a bike for a refreshing way to see the base of the valley. Gaze up at Yosemite’s most iconic monument, Half Dome, and pose for postcard-perfect photos in front of multiple waterfalls.
